My ggg.uncle Frederick Haffy Akers compiled a genealogy back in the early sixties and I have been working to bring it up to data as well as add more detail.
Listed is a William Akers son of Joseph H. Akers and Honor Crawford. I have no dates, but his notes indicate William was killed in the civil war.
Does anyone have a suggestion as to where I might go to further research civil war dead? I am hoping to locate which side he fought on (we have family on both sides) as well as which regiment he served in and which battle he died in.
